Father's Reflections The Baptism of the Lord

Jan 11, 2019

Dear St. Paul Family,

Now that the Christmas Season comes to an end this weekend, the next season, cold and flu season is upon us.  We will continue to offer Holy Communion under both species for the time being, the Precious Body and the Precious Blood, but please be prudent.  If you are feeling ill, please refrain from receiving the Precious Blood until you are feeling better out of concern for all your brothers and sisters with whom you come to worship with.  Let’s try to keep each other as healthy as we can during this time.  Out of reverence for Jesus who is truly present in both the Precious Body and Precious Blood, please remember to bow your head before both species even if you don’t receive from both while processing through the Communion line.  Also, at the Sign of Peace, if you are feeling ill, instead of a handshake, perhaps just wish the persons near year a verbal sign of peace.  If you let your neighbors know you are under the weather they will all understand and be appreciative.

Have a Wonderful Week!

Blessings,
Fr. Andy
